Handmade Lotion RecipesHandmade Lotion Recipes

In today’s world, most people like to make their own soaps, bath and body products and even cosmetics. Generally, creating those things are not hard at all. Not only do you know the ingredients that will go in your product, but you can make the product to fit your needs or the needs of your customers or loved ones. Many people nowadays have skin issues that require skin-sensitive ingredients. That is another reason why many people turn to handmade goods. And like we stated before, it isn’t hard to do. Take a look through some of Nature’s Garden handmade lotion recipes. You will see how really simply and easy it is to make lotion. Also, with only a few ingredients, you can make a perfectly beautiful lotion that could rival the most expensive store brands out there in the market!

 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Some Key Ingredients

Before we get started on our recipes, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the key ingredients that you need to make lotion with. Really you can make a lotion with just shea butter and coconut oil whipped together. However, while those things will soften and hydrate your skin, they can separate while sitting when water is added. Another thing, they may not absorb into your skin very well, leaving you feeling greasy and sticky. The following components that we will discuss are key to getting a beautiful emulsified lotion that will not leave your skin feeling tacky and absorb beautifully.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 EmulsifierHandmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 Emulsifier

Our first ingredient is Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, or BTMS 25 Emulsifier is a natural, conditioning emulsifier that can be used in hair and skin care. BTMS is naturally derived from Colza oil. Colza oil is a non-drying oil that is obtained from seeds of the rapeseed plant. It isn’t truly rapeseed oil, but a derivative of it. BTMS can be used in creams and lotions to provide a soft, powdery feel to the skin and is very gentle on the skin and hair.

Handmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and SilkyHandmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and Silky

Next ingredient is our two other emulsifying waxes. We have Emulsifying Wax- Traditional and Silky Emulsifying Wax. While these waxes are not 100 percent natural, they are partial plant based and give wonderful structure to any type of lotion, cream, shampoo or conditioner. Both traditional and silky are self-emulsifying, low odor, highly stable, and highly compatible. Low concentrations of these waxes will improve the consistency and stability of emulsions. Which one do you choose for your product? Which ever you want! So, what exactly is the difference? The only difference is silky will give your lotion a lovely, silky-soft feel to you skin long after the lotion or cream has absorbed.  They can be used interchangeably.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen PreservativeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen Preservative

Preservatives are essential to cosmetic formulations because they kill germs that can make you and your customers very sick. Optiphen is a liquid, paraben-free and formaldehyde-free preservative that provides broad spectrum preservation against bacteria, yeast and mold, the presence of caprylyl glycol. It also imparts an exceptional feel to the finished formulation which makes it useful in creams, sunscreens, lotions, cosmetics, body washes and shampoo recipes. This is a definite must have in any of your water based bath and body products that are created from scratch.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Stearic Acid and Sodium Lactate

Stearic Acid is a plant based ingredient that is widely used in bath and body products, soaps and even in candles. For bath and body products, it is a wonderful addition to thicken up your product. In soaps, it is used to harden your bars of soap and to make them last longer. When used in candles, it also helps harden the wax and is perfect for making pillar candles or any type of mold candle. Another option is sodium lactate. Sodium lactate is a natural moisturizer, humectant, and pH regulator. It is used in handmade soaps, lotions, shampoo, and other bath and body products.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Distilled Water

Yes, distilled water is an important ingredient to any of your lotions. You will see in any of our lotion recipes, that we ask you to heat your distilled water up to a specific ingredient and hold it there for 20 minutes. This is to ensure that you have destroyed any bacteria that may have been lingering around in the water.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: The Phases

Also you will notice that each recipe is done in phases. You have your Water Phase, which is where you are heating your water up. The Oil Phase. This is where you will heat and melt any of your butters and oils and waxes to a specific temperature. Next will be the Mixing Phase. Your will then mix together your water and butter and oils with a stick blender to emulsify. Lastly, you have your Cool Down Phase where you allow the lotion mixture to cool to a specific temperature before adding your fragrance oil and Optiphen. Then, you will package up your lotion and label if desired and you are ready to gift everybody you love with some handmade love! Now, let’s talk about our recipes!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Cocoa Dream Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Cocoa Dream Cream Recipe

Our first lotion is our Cocoa Dream Cream!   This is a thick, luscious cream that smells heavenly with our Butter Brickle fragrance oil. A soft, buttery vanilla fragrance that leave you smelling sweet! Sweet almond oil, and cocoa butter will give your skin a reason to be happy! It absorbs beautifully and leaves you feeling soft!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe

Our Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion is a beautiful lotion for any skin! Created with infused waters made from hibiscus flower powder and rosehips flower powder, your skin will thank you for the extra attention. Hibiscus is an herb know for being high in antioxidants and amino acids, and also contain oligopeptides that have been shown to have wrinkle-smoothing properties. Rosehips contain high levels of vitamin C, in addition to vitamins E, A, and D. Rosehips are used in skincare for its high level of antioxidants and anti-aging properties. The hibiscus/rosehip infusion will add a lovely natural pink color to your lotion. For the fragrance we chose our Peach Magnolia Raspberry fragrance oil. This scent smells of juicy raspberries and peaches with a light floral background.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Frappe Mocha Body Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Frappe Mocha Body Cream Recipe

Our Frappe Mocha Body Cream is perfect for those with a coffee addiction! This cream is made with cocoa butter and sweet almond Oil. Both are perfect for making your skin feel soft and silky. As for the water part, however, we created it using a distilled coffee brew. This lotion is not only made with coffee, but the steeped coffee water truly helps punch up the coffee fragrance.

This body cream also comes in a kit size if you are looking for a Christmas gift to give to somebody special!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream Recipe

This cream recipe is a favorite of mine. Natural Face Cream is made with an infusion of calendula flowers.  Calendula is believed to reduce inflammation, reduce acne, and promote healthy skin, which makes this a perfect addition to a night cream. Also, we have included Avocado Oil and Grapeseed Oil. Grapeseed oil does not clog pores, absorbs easily into the skin, does not leave a greasy feel to the skin, and provides the skin with anti inflammatory properties.  It is high in linoleic acid; providing mosturizing effects to the skin. Avocado Oil is a rich, moisturizing oil that is perfect for those with sensitive skin. This lotion is also available in a kit.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion Recipe

Back in the 1970s there was a lotion my grandmother used a lot. It was called Rose Milk lotion and our Rose Lotion recipe truly reminds me of her when I use it. We infused our distilled water with our red Rose Buds & Petals. Rose water is the perfect addition to any skin-care regime. Its use dates back to days of Cleopatra and has many incredible benefits to its use. Rose water is perfect for any type of skin. It has antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory and has a load of antioxidants in it. We also used cocoa butter, fractionated coconut oil and meadowfoam seed oil. Meadowfoam seed oil is a wonderful, light oil that absorbs easily into the skin, leaving you feeling soft and not greasy! We chose our Fresh Cut Roses fragrance oil to scent this beautiful lotion.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar Recipe

Solid Lotion Bar is a quick and simple lotion that is perfect for those who like to hydrate their skin on the go! Made with shea butter, beeswax and jojoba oil, you have a lotion that absorbs quickly, seals in the moisture and keeps the winter dry skin at bay! This lotion is perfect for gym bags, purses, backpacks. No need to worry about loose caps and possible leakage with this lotion! We scented this lotion bar with our Beautiful Babe fragrance oil. If you are familiar with Estee Lauder’s Beautiful perfume, then you know how good this lotion will smell!  This fragrance is a delicate rose, jasmine and carnations with undertones of sweet melon and plum!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion Recipe

Even though it says Wine Lotion, we did not use actual wine in the recipe. However, we did use our Resveratrol Extract Powder. Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in in the skin of red grapes. This powder is similar in the same properties of red wine, meaning it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties, and is used in products that fight acne. Also, Resveratrol is used in anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cosmetic products. It will provide anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling.

We also included cocoa butter, grapeseed oil and Jojoba Oil. Both of these oils are wonderful for the skin! Grapeseed oil is light and non-greasy feeling on the skin.  Jojoba oil is considered a “liquid wax” and it will lock in the moisture and keeps your skin hydrated. We chose our Shiraz fragrance oil to help round out our “wine theme”. This is a beautiful, light fruity but robust red wine scent! A must try for wine lovers! 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Chamomile Lotion Recipe

Our last recipe for today is our Chamomile Lotion Recipe. This is an easy, basic recipe that is perfect for beginners. We used apricot kernel oil and grapeseed oil. Both are light, absorb-able and non-greasy oils and are perfect when you want a light lotion. This would be a perfect summer-time lotion with no heavy oils or butters. The fragrance oil we chose is the delicate Chamomile fragrance oil. Chamomile fragrance oil smells of freshly picked chamomile flowers with hints of fresh green herbs.

Christmas time is really a hectic time of year. Decorating, card writing, the kids’ Christmas programs and shopping, it’s amazing that it is the happiest time of year!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free ChristmasOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free Christmas

Most of us in today’s world, have the idea that Christmas has to be picture perfect. We watch the movies on the Hallmark Channel and expect our Christmas to be just like on TV.

However, we don’t live our lives scripted. It’s always important to remember that the Christmas tree doesn’t have to look like Martha Stewart decorated it. Our Christmas cookies do not need to look like they came straight out of Bon Appetit magazine. Christmas is a beautiful time to simply spend with loved ones. Those will be the memories that your children can cherish and remember when they grow older. It’s not about how perfect the ornaments were hung on the tree. It’s about the memory you have of each ornament that you hang on those branches. It isn’t about how perfectly edged the icing was on the cookies. It’s about how awesome those cookies tasted no matter how much icing Junior glopped onto the snowman shaped cookie.

Enjoy your holidays! Take some shortcuts when it comes to having friends or family over. It’s okay to have something that’s not made from scratch! Homemade gifts don’t have to say you don’t have the funds to buy elaborate gifts. If you create things for certain people in mind, then you have given something to somebody that says, “I took my time and love to make you something I knew you would enjoy.” That type of Christmas is perfect in every way. Follow this link to read up on how to have a stress free Christmas before you start running in a million directions!

 

 

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle RecipeOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle Recipe

Our first recipe is our Candy Cane Candle Recipe. This is truly a fun candle to have on your tabletop during the Christmas season. This is a simple candle to create. We used our awesome Joy Wax. Joy Wax is a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is easy to work with, even if you’ve never made candles before. Our Joy Wax has a wonderful hot and cold throw. It has a nice creamy finish and sets up beautifully in your containers. The candy cane candle is layered in pink, red and white with a fluffy, whipped wax topping! Yes, you can create fluffy whipped toppings with this wax. To complete the “candy” theme of the candle, we placed two swirled candy embeds made from our Pillar of Bliss. Pillar of Bliss is also a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is perfect for creating embeds or wax melts. It hardens up nicely to allow for easy release from molds.

We have scented the candle in our Candy Cane fragrance oil. This scented oil is a yummy blend of peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, strawberries and vanilla. This fragrance is a must for any type of Christmas projects you have in mind!

We also used some Peppermint Essential Oil and Vanilla Powder for fragrance. It is a yummy smelling combination! Your skin will be glowing and refreshed after just one use! While we did layer it to have the look of a candy cane, the powders and clays will combine once you start using it, however, it will still smell divine. Just like a stick of peppermint candy!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath CookieOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath Cookie

You just have to have cookies at Christmas time! It’s a necessary thing. So how about some cookies at bath time? Our Christmas Bath Cookies look and smell yummy enough to eat, and are perfect to entice little ones to take a bath! These bath cookies are very similar to bath bombs. The fizz and bubble and will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling good! We have used cocoa butter, mango butter, kaolin clay powder, and baking soda to name just a few of the ingredients. Your skin is going to feel amazing after your bath! We chose our Christmas Cookies fragrance oil that smells exactly like a freshly baked, buttery Christmas Cookie! Of course, cookies need frosting, right? Our “frosting” is our whipped soap that we used some of our FUN Soap colorant.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, cold process soap, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, Soap making supplies, Uncategorized, wholesale fragrance oils and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe

There is something about Autumn and the holidays that make you want to create a warm, cozy home. I suppose it is similar to hibernating. If you are going to spend most of your time indoors during the cold weather, then making your home a snug place to come home to is your hibernation time. There is nothing better than walking in the front door of your home to warmth, family, pets and good smells to make you feel safe and happy to be there! Nature’s Garden’s Pecan Pie Wax Melts recipe will definitely give your home a wonderful, inviting smell of warm butter, caramel, brown sugar, and toasted pecans.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan PiePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan Pie

While any information on how the Pecan Pie came to be is a little sketchy, it is for certain, that it started out as one type of dessert similar to the ingredients that were used and then evolved into a true Southern dessert using staple ingredients that were native to the area. The basis of this pie is sugar, butter, syrup (pre-Karo syrup days, it was cane syrup) and eggs. This is the basic recipe for Chess Pie, which has its own origin. However, the addition of pecans and whoever thought of adding it is a mystery that will never be solved, but let’s thank whoever felt like spicing up their dessert! A personal favorite addition to my pecan pie? Chocolate drizzle and a dollop of ice vanilla ice cream! Mmmmm!  However, our inspiration for this project came from these pecan mini pies from Sugar Hero.  While, of course, our wax melts aren’t edible, her mini pecan pies are simply AMAZING! So, if this wax tart recipe, and sent leaves your belly grumbling, give her recipe a try.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Let’s Talk Ingredients

So before we move onto making our Pecan Pie Wax Melts, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the ingredients we are using.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

So anytime a recipe calls for a wax melt,  we will always use our Pillar of Bliss. The reason for that is that Pillar of Bliss is the best wax when we are using a mold for our creation. This wax has an easy release from the mold since it hardens up nicely. Most waxes, such as soy, are often too soft and can often difficult to get out of the mold. Pillar of Bliss is a granulated blend of soy wax (more than 50 percent) and paraffin wax. This wax has excellent scent retention as well as amazing hot and cold throws. 

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle Wax

The next wax we will be using is our Joy Wax Candle Wax. This wax is also a blend of soy, veggie waxes, and paraffin. Joy Wax also has wonderful scent retention along with awesome hot and cold throws. Any time you would like to add a fluffy topping to any of your candle creations, this wax is perfect for that! As you will see, it can be whipped up into a puffy cloud of fluff! It’s perfect for use in dessert candles or wax melts!

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Granny’s Pecan Pie Fragrance Oil

This is one of my favorite home scents to use for the fall (or anytime actually). It has a warm aroma of brown sugar, vanilla, butter, and roasted pecans. This fragrance oil does amazing in all candle waxes that were tested. It also did very well when we tested in Cold Process soap. While it did discolor to a chocolate brown (which I think is a perfect color for a soap when using this fragrance) there was no acceleration, or ricing! It did, however, separate, yet it reabsorbed with no problem. I am sure that this would be a perfect fragrance to add to your fall/holiday line of products.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Ingredients Available at Nature’s Garden

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You will Need

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your wax melts, it is always good to prepare your work area. Clean your work area and also your equipment that you will be using. Make sure that you have all your ingredients and utensils handy and within reaching distance. These few steps will help ensure that your creating will run smoothly and uninterrupted. If this is your first time working with candle wax, you might like to familiarize yourself with how to make candles. Follow this link to get a quick rundown on melting and pour temperatures and also proper temperatures for adding fragrances.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing Your Double Boiler

The first step before starting your wax melts will be to set up your double boiler. If you know the process of setting up a double boiler, you can move on to the next step of prepping your wax. However, if you are unfamiliar with a double boiler, we can explain to you how it is done in a few easy steps.

First, you will need a large pot or even an old cake pan for the outside part of your double boiler. Place this onto your heating element. This can be your stove top or even a hot plate. Next, pour about 3 inches of water into the pot or pan. Then, you will need a smaller pot or a pouring pot, for the inside part of the double boiler. As a side note, it isn’t really necessary, however, it is so much easier pouring melted wax into the molds if your pot has a pouring spout. That is why a pouring pitcher is ideal as the inner part of your double boiler. Next, turn your burner on to medium heat to allow the water to warm up as you are preparing your wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the BasesPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the Bases

First, you will be preparing the bases of the wax melts. For this step, you will need the Pillar of Bliss Wax. On your scale, set your pouring pot and tare out the weight. Weigh out 325 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oilPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oil

Next, place the pouring pot into the larger part of your double boiler and allow the wax to melt to the proper temperature, stirring occasionally. While you are waiting for the wax to melt, you can weigh out the fragrance oil. To a small dish, weigh out 32 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. You can set this aside for the moment. Once your wax has reached the correct melting point, remove the pouring pot from the heat and you can now add in the liquid candle dyes. We are going for a pecan color so you will add in 3 drops of yellow liquid candle dye and 4 drops of brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to incorporate the color thoroughly.

Once the wax has reached the correct temperature for the fragrance oil, you can now add that, once again stirring well to completely disperse the oil throughout the wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the Wax

Now that your melted wax is colored and scented, you will be pouring the wax into their molds. With the silicone mini muffin mold in front of you, carefully fill each mold to the top with the melted wax. Once these are all filled, allow them to set up completely until they have cooled. Pop them out of the muffin cavities and place them on a piece of wax paper. You can set these aside for the moment.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan EmbedsPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan Embeds

Next, you will be preparing the Pecan Embeds. For the embeds, you will notice we are using a mold from Flexible Molds. This company offers many different types of molds to fit any of your soap or candle making needs. They are very durable molds, that will last you a long time! So, to your pouring pot weigh out 50 grams of Pillar of Bliss candle Wax and place it into the larger pot of heated water. Melt this wax down to the proper temperature. While you are waiting for this wax to melt, weigh out 5 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil into a small bowl and set this aside for the moment.

For the color of the pecans, you will only need a small amount. So, using a toothpick to add the color, swirl in a small amount of yellow and brown liquid candle dye. The pecans do not have to be the same exact shade as the bases of the wax melts. It is okay if they are a bit lighter. Stir the liquid color until it is fully blended. Now you can add in the pre-weighed fragrance oil and stir this well also. Next, you will pour the melted wax into the pecan embeds mold carefully. Once again, you will let these set up until cool before removing them from the mold. Since the mold has only 6 cavities, you will need to remelt any of the wax remaining in the pot to pour the second set of pecans.  Set the pecans aside on a piece of wax paper until later.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate DrizzlePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate Drizzle

Next, you will be preparing the chocolate drizzle. For this, you will need the joy wax. In your pouring pot, weigh out 20 grams of Joy wax. Melt the wax completely and then add in 2 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. Then, using the toothpick method, add in both black and brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to fully incorporate the fragrance and color.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Drizzling the Chocolate

Now, you will drizzle the chocolate wax over the bases of your pecan pies. So, using a spoon, dip it into the wax and holding it above the bases, drizzle the wax back and forth over the pies until you have used all the wax, or until you are satisfied with your drizzle.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Whipped Topping

The next step is preparing the whipped topping of the pies. As a side note, if you are using the same pouring pot as in the previous steps, you will want to clean out the pot completely using paper towels. This is only necessary since the whipped topping will be white with no color. Any leftover colored wax may cause your wax to have a tint. So, in your cleaned out pouring pot, weigh out 120 grams of Joy Wax. Place into the heated water and melt, stirring occasionally.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the whipped toppingPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the whipped topping

So once the joy wax has completely melted, remove the pouring pot from the heat source and add in 12 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance and stir this well to combine. For this step, you can use a mixer or even just a spoon. As your wax is cooling down, it will begin to thicken. As it begins to thicken, mix the wax to create a whipped topping consistency. Once you have your wax to whipped consistency, place a dollop on top of each cupcake base.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Pecan EmbedsPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Pecan Embeds

Next, place a pecan embed on top of each whip topped pie. Press down so the embed adheres to the top snugly. This recipe creates 12 wax melts. Pecan Pie Wax Melts are ready to use! Simply place one in your wax burner and enjoy the warm, comforting aroma that will fill your home!
